Book Holder!

(This is the one I found online.)

(This is after it was primed--forgot to take a picture earlier.)

(Finished product!)

I have had no place to put our sons books that we are slowly collecting. I found this book holder online and really liked it, but I saw that they were selling them for $70!!! Yeah right....So my husband and I went to Home Depot to get wood and he made/painted it, as I helped measure,taped and put vinyl on. I really like how ours turned out and we haven't decided if we want to put the round balls they have on the bottom of theirs or not. (found some at home depot for pretty spendy--maybe can find some at a thrift store!) Total cost of project---about $10!!!


  1. Super cute! I think it looks perfect without the round balls.

    Found your link on Blue Cricket Design

  2. I've been using a decorative basket in each of my kids rooms, but I really like this idea!

    Thanks for linking up with What are little boys made of?

  3. What a great idea! It seems like my children's books have taken over the house and this would be a great way to tame them! I'll definitely have to put this in my "to make" list!
